Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours dark brn/blk with a transient, fizzy, tan head. Aroma is hugely dark treacle, dark fruit and suggesting cola. Med body. Flavor is aroma with coffee and an emphasis on the chocolate. Finish is dark malt with complex flavor accents. Delicious.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Dark oily obsidian pour with a creamy latte pour. Dusty cocoa, vanilla, charcoal, toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, and a hint of alcohol. All of the parts are better than the sum...a really rock solid beer but not in the realm of world class.

Bottle from De Hopduvel. Beautiful black colour, dark brown foam. Medium carbonation. Full body. Complex aroma of roasted malts and coffee with remarkable fruitiness (berries, peach). Well balanced, sweet and heavy bitter aftertaste. Good!

Douberd (2078) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, vintage 2012,poured into a snifter. ABV 13% Black coloured, one finger of dark brown head, thick, with good retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma has some sweet and vinous notes while underneath there are some dark roasted malts and light chocolate, faint alcohol. Taste of roasted malts, liquorice, grapes, very light chocolate on the finish, wood, alcohol but not what we call boozy, sugar canes/rum. Full body, carbonation on the high side but it works fine on this beer, sticky palate. Overall an impressive beer, at first I wasn’t too excited about it but after some time and while it warmed up a bit, it made me change my mind, really great.
